Dead Space 2 Is Now Available for Free, Thanks to Games With Gold

Take Advantage of Your Gold Subscription Today

Free games are free and don’t need to be good for you to try them, but I got news for you, Dead Space 2 is good. Some might even say it’s great, and the experience is available now for Xbox Gold subscribers.

Xbox Gold subscribers can download the game and start playing today. Essentially, you will own the license for the duration of your Xbox Gold subscription. Since this is a single-player experience, if you’re worried about space, it’s definitely a game worth playing that you can delete later. But if you enjoy it, it only takes 13.40 GB, which is a very small piece of any hard drive. You can play the game on Xbox 360 or Xbox One via Backward Compatibility.

Published by EA, Dead Space 2 presents what may be the magnum opus of Visceral Games studio. With the studio now dismantled—may it rest in peace—it practically represents what will forever be the developer’s greatest achievement. It takes everything from the first game and emboldens gameplay and narrative for, dare I say it, a more visceral experience. Meanwhile, the world seems split on the sequel, Dead Space 3.

You have from today until April 30th to download Dead Space 2. That’s plenty of time to take advantage of your subscription, which also includes Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate for free. Twist! Yes, Syndicate is also available to subscribers at no cost. Meaning, you now have two potential games to enjoy. Experience the last story of Templars and the Creed before the arrival of Ubisoft’s latest installment, Assassin’s Creed: Origins.

Happy gaming.
